Kimberly Ince & Delron Felix To Represent Grenada Swimming at Tokyo Olympics 

PR – Delron  Felix  and  Kimberly  Ince  will  represent  Grenada in Swimming at next month’s 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, Japan. 

The COVID-19 global pandemic led to the cancelation of the initial staging of the 2020 Olympics.   Athletes throughout the world were left in limbo and unsure of their athletic future.   The global lockdown  posed  obvious  challenges  for  the  continuation  of  training  and  athletes  had  to  dig  deep within to remain motivated.   

Our athletes were no exception.  Kimberly Ince had to adapt to online learning at a critical stage  of Secondary School as she entered FORM 5 at St.  Josephs Convent St. George’s while Delron  juggled  the  responsibilities  of  work  in  an  uncertain  environment.    Training  was  not  without  challenges  during  the  periods  of  partial  lockdowns  and  limited  access  to  a  training  pool.   Despite the many obstacles faced they were successful in their selection for universality places  to represent Grenada on the highest swimming stage. 

Delron Felix will compete in the Men’s 100M Freestyle while Kimberly Ince will compete in the  Women’s 100M Backstroke.  Swimming events start on July 24th.  We extend congratulations to  our swimmers as they continue on their final leg of preparation for Tokyo 2020.
